Pacific Gas and Electric’s CEO, chairman, and president, Tony Early, will lead an employee challenge to raise $5.6 million for organizations and schools as part of the utility’s annual Campaign for the Community. It is the first time PG&E’s top leader will lead the effort.

The latest issue of Water Environment Research magazine contains an article about the benefits and limitations of a combined biofuel production with wastewater treatment system. Several studies have shown that combining algal biofuel output with wastewater leads to significantly greater energy performance due to the outputs of one process feeding the other. WER magazine is published by the Water Environment Federation.

The Earth Advantage Institute has announced a new green building certification aimed at new or retrofitted small commercial buildings. The certification, designed for buildings under 100,000 square feet, is cheaper than the LEED building standard administered by the U.S. Green Building Council. Earth Advantage Commercial judges buildings across five categories: energy efficiency, healthy environment, use of green materials, sustainable land use, and water conservation.
